Before Charley was deployed, I had to sneak in some family pictures. I had to have some ready for Christmas, but also, you just never know. I don’t like to think about the dark side of things, but it’s hard not to let your mind stray that way when facing a deployment. My goal was to have fabulous images to have for always, to share with family and friends, to have displayed around my home as a constant reminder of their daddy, and to have images to send to Charley to keep him company.

I contacted my friend, Liz and fellow photographer to take on my mission 🙂 Liz is the owner of Lizvette Wreath Photography. You may remember her from last year. She took our family photos for our Christmas card, which I don’t think I shared anything except for the blooper reel. If you haven’t seen the blooper reel, you really must. It’s quite funny!

Anyway, here are a few from our session in September.


Hands down, one of my favorite images!
